LPGA leaders absent
WHEELING, W. Va. (AP) - Pat
Bradley and JoAnne Carner lead a field
that is conspicuous by the absence of
seven of the top 10 money winners into
today's start of the $125,000 West
Virginia LPGA Classic at the Speidel
Only about half of the top 40 money
winners - 21 golfers in all - will be
competing at the mountainous course,
which is considered one of the most
physically demanding on the LPGA
"SOME OF the girls are tired right
now and they want to take a break,"
said Carner, the fourth-leading money
winner. She noted that the golfers have
played several 72-hole tournaments
"Physically, I don't think the women
can play as many 72-hole tournaments
as the men," she said. "There are a lot
more four-day tournaments now and it
does take its toll ... that's probably
why only three of the top 10 money win-
ners are here."
Despite the absence of leading money
winner Donna Caponi, Nancy Lopez-
Melton, Beth Daniel, Sally Little and
Kathy Whitworth, tournament director
Phil Day called the field "super."
"I'D BE LYING if I said I didn't wish
we had more golfers," Day said. "But I
still think we'll have a very competitive
Jan Stephenson, the ninth-leading
money winner with earnings of $91,188,
withdrew from the 54-hole tournament
Thursday. The only top 10 golfers com-
peting are Bradley, Carner and Jane
Blalock, the 10th-leading money winner
and a two-time champion in Wheeling.
She won both the 1976 and 1978 tour-
naments and set the scoring record in
the eight-year-old tournament in 1978
with a nine-under-par 207.
Golfers among the second 10 in
money earnings who are playing this
week are Hollis Stacy, defending
champion Sandra Post, 1977 winner
Debbie Austin, Patty Hayes, Dot Ger-
main and Carolyn Hill.
